Useful apps

Here are our top 5 must have apps for when you’re in the Netherlands to make your life just a little easier.

1. Google Translate

This obviously helps with translating menus at restaurants, quickly finding the word you need in the right language and translating all official mail that you might get in Dutch.

2. 9292

This app helps when it comes to looking for which train/bus/tram you need to be on. It also gives you the prices of your trips and any updates on disruptions.

3. Buienradar

The Dutch weather is rather unpredictable. This app gives you an overview of upcoming rain showers and how long they will last - allowing you to step outside at just the right moments to avoid getting soaked.

4. Thuisbezorgd/Uber Eats/Deliveroo

All these apps are food delivery apps. I guess you can see how this can come in handy at any-time of the day, once in a while.

5. Marktplaats

This app allows you to shop online and get secondhand items at a bargain price, from bikes to furniture. You can sell on this app as well.
